Applications for the 2020 Professional Residencies are now available and are due by December 2, 2019.

The 2020 Orchard Project will run from May 28- July 7, 2020. 

If you have ANY problems with your application, please email us at info@orchardproject.com.

You can use the following application for our hallmark program:

  • Orchard Project Professional Labs (for individual artists, teams, or companies to work or a project or projects)

There are other programs that run concurrently with the the above, but their applications are on different pages:

  • The Orchard Project NYC Greenhouse (for creative artists looking for collborators and a multi-year continuum of support).
  • The Orchard Project Episodic/TV Lab
  • The Orchard Project Core Company (for younger, emerging artists and students)

Unlike other programs, our process and focus is not to focus on the projects themselves. What that means is that the Orchard Project team and other artists who we have supported in past years assess whether the applicants are likely to create amazing work, and whether we think they will uniquely benefit from our support and the supportive atmosphere that makes the Orchard Project so special. 

Please be sure to read the Orchard Project FAQ before applying. The FAQ includes very important details about the structure of the program and application process, including copies of key questions for you to work on offline if so desired.

Please note that the process for submitting an application has changed. We now ask you to start an application, which you can return to and edit at any time. When you are ready to submit your application for review, we then ask you to visit our application payment page to submit payment, which is tied to your Application ID. Applications will be complete when submitted with a non-refundable fee payment. The fee is $30 if submitted before November 15, and $40 if submitted after November 15. We accept requests for fee waivers at all times at info@orchardproject.com.

The deadline for Professional Residency Applications is December 2, 2019.

Applications to participate in the Core Company are due by March 1, 2020. Applications are available on the Core pages (see menu above).
